Description

Have you asked yourself any of these questions?

  • Is it possible to achieve the ROI requirement implied by double-digit EBITDA multiples in most acquisitions?
  • What are the best practices performed by top-performing firms that differentiate them in terms of profitability/ROI?
  • Is there a systematic framework of best-practice implementation that can be adopted by wholesaler-distributors?
  • How do best practices enhance shareholder value?
  • Where is the link that connects process to profitability?

This perennial best seller answers these questions and more.

There are 47 best practices in Optimizing Distributor Profitability: Best Practices to a Stronger Bottom Line and all were developed from actual experiences of 84 real wholesale distribution firms across our industry.

This groundbreaking research study is not academic modeling or theory; it is a powerful weapon for you to use to enhance your shareholder value.

Part 1 presents the basic idea of a wholesale distribution framework and a five-step methodology. Part 2 puts those ideas into action by applying them to each of the seven distributor business functions: Source; Stock; Store; Sell; Ship; Supply Chain Planning; and Support Services. Each chapter presents a real-world example of a wholesaler-distributor that identifies and implements process improvements, and the impact of those improvements on shareholder value. Finally, each chapter concludes by showing exactly how you can apply the ideas and methodology to your firm.

Optimizing Distributor Profitability includes:

  • A five-step methodology with clear how-to-implement ideas and tools
  • 123 detailed exhibits that walk you through the processes
  • 50 action steps that you can implement today and over time
  • How do best practices enhance shareholder value?
  • A Distributor Profitability Framework wall map to help you follow how business processes and financial drivers are linked to enhance shareholder value.

This book is a collaboration of the NAW Institute and Texas A&M, two leaders in wholesale distribution education and training.
